piss-off e fiscal cliff. so we don't have a severe recession but simplify the tax code. fire ben bernanke to get somebody whoealizes to cheapen the dollar is not the way to wealth. >> he could force him out. >> harry truman showed you could fire the fed chairman. [laughter] as well as a general. [laughter] lou: none of that has the immediate effect of those o have suffered under this administration. those who don't have a job and are underemployed giving up then we have a group of ceos speaking up for the multinationals we would like to go to the simpson thing. we want to raise taxes. reject it -- rejected by both republicans and democrats. we hear from business leaders they come up with this. >> how low do the fine balance? i will take that. remove the tax shelter and cut the top rate. >> rahm it -- romney is already proposing nonsense. >> we have a huge tax increase already slowing the economy down. to the clutter the tax code everyone can declare victory li 1986. we took the jump out and got the rates down. get those down sharply. >> he will be the president. >> romney has alr
the 1%, and in return, we're trying to, you know, keep the tax rates low and no tax hikes so that makes us, in a weird way, backed into a corner defending the 1 #%. that makes us look like we defend the special interests. neil: if that's the case, and, i mean, i know you argue it's not true, come back at say, well, why are you taking money from the same group that is last time we checked the 1%. >> it's the obama spin. a lot of teem -- a lot of people are not like you into the news. everybody catches glimpses, short 30-second 1-minute adds, and they think that obama -- neil: they can see pot meet kettle; right? they can see hi hypocrisy; righ? >> they can. i think this happened with libya. they are seeing, wow, you are not here to protect this. the policies really do not work. i don't think the people are neil: interesting to me, and i don't cast on anyone, but if you make it a point and call the other guy a bs in "rolling stopes," make your you're not. be that as a may, a lot of money in the race. do you think mitt romney will be the billion dollar man? >> oh, absolutely. neil: where i
wall on taxes, and christie was put on national television and christie quickly realized he doesn't want to be making excuses for mitt romney not releasing his taxes. it's going to go over horribly in new jersey. doesn't look good, period. it was christie much all people who said, you know what, mitt romney should release his taxes. we've seen this a few times from christie. his brand is dependent on being seen as a bipartisan guy. you can't do anything in this situation except working cooperatively and praising president obama if you're going to be a bipartisan guy. >> let me go to another point here. while i'm talking about romney, steve, he very clearly said that fema -- last year he said fema could be privatized or handled by the states. today he wouldn't even answer questions about it. "the new york times" editorial board slammed romney for his position on fema today writing disaster coordination is one of the most vital functions of big government, which is why mitt romney wants to eliminate it. does mr. romney really believe financially strapped states would do a better job
a significant impediment to the economy. if we see very large increases in taxes, and by the way, never liked the work fiscal cliff because it tends to but still lower spending with higher taxes. most of the problem is on the tax side, not the spending side. if we don't get that fixed we're going to have the very significant drag on this economy , sufficiently significant that we could go into a recession. gerri: the national association of manufacturers out with a study showing that if everything does stay in place we will get unemployment at 12%, lose 6 million jobs. the report even says that the threat of the fiscal cliff cut half a percent of the gdp this year. the impact is already there. it will mean fewer jobs, less robust economy. the you think they ar talking up the story are too pessimistic , do you think they're right on target? >> well, i would not doubt for their numbers, but i certainly agree wi the direction that ey're talking about. there is no question that it is not just uncertainty. it is the concern that we will have higher taxes and taxes on sectors of the economy that ha
the controversialal methods raising tax revenue. >> there needs to be compromise and compromise not being a dirty word, but rather being synonymous with governing. yes, i recognize my taxes are going up. i haven't developed a table that says i'll be willing to pay this much more if you're willing to cut this much more. who knows where that's going to go. but i would say most companies, most people expect that they're probably going to have to pay more. >> an increasing number of ceos are going on record that they're willing to pay more in taxes to avert the so-called fiscal cliff as part of a comprehensive plan. if congress fails to act by january, it will trigger $600 billion of cuts. businesses not certain of what lies ahead have been reluctant to increase pay rolls. >> we stop hiring externally. as people leave their positions, we don't fill those jobs. as you look at exapt expenditures, we start to slow down our spending. and you see most companies doing that now because when you run into an uncertain time, you question everything. >> reporter: and colgate is cutting 2300 workers. ford is scaling
new level last week when it was revealed that a nonpartisan tax report was withdrawn by a federal agency because republicans protested its findings. the federal agency in question here is the congressional resource service. they're kind of the gold standard. congress's internal think tank. members of congress have a question about policy or issue, they look into it for them and they issue a report in response to a member of congress asking for that report. the congressional research service is as nonpa parpartisan gets in washington. and a little more than a month ago, they issued a report on tax policy. they found there is no connection between lowering the tax rates on millionaires and billionaires and creating economic growth. there's no evidence that if you cut taxes on the rich that that makes the economy grow. that's a problem because that is essentially mitt romney's whole reason for living. this is the republican party's economic reason for existing. if you cut taxes on the rich, the job creators, that will jump start the economy. this is the whole basis of the party' econ

was that he favors a progressive tax policy, taxing those at the very highest rungs of income a little more to provide a little more help to those on the bottom rungs. "the des moines register" has now abandoned that as a reason for choosing a president. the editorial board has abandoned it in favor of this lie. there is not a lot of difference between the two candidates' short-term economic plans. four years ago, one of the biggest reasons "the des moines register" gave for endorsing president obama was expanding health insurance coverage to more americans will lessen the threat that illness will bring financial ruin. four years later, health insurance is not mentioned in their editorial endorsing the man who promises to repeal the obama expansion of health insurance that "the des moines register" advocated. another important reason cited four years ago in endorsing president obama was the supremely important reason of supreme court justices. obama promises to appoint justices with an expansive view of constitutional rights and equal justice. mccain's appointments more likely would continu
of taxes. everybody's been talking about these swing states as if the tail can wag the dog. somehow if you win the swing states, you affect the whole rest of the country in doing so, when that's the residue. but if you spend all your advertising money and all your grassroots, all your social media, and you focus it all on ohio, that doesn't help you win in pennsylvania. it doesn't help you in minnesota or michigan. i'm wondering whether they got the thing wrong, possibly, the obama people, by putting all their faith in winning those seven states, or most of them. what do you think? >> i think that because of the electoral college, elections, presidential elections have to focus on swing states and have to focus on these emerging purple states, because as it turns out, the elections sometimes do hinge on them. this election does seem to hinge on these particular swing states. the reason why the polling is so confusing, chris, is because sometimes national polls don't take into effect the fact that we have an electoral college, don't take into effect that some of these swing states will be s
budget and tax plan. he's refused to say if he supports the lily ledbetter fair pay act for women. he's refused to say if he would enter one-on-one nuclear talks with the iranians. he's refused to answer questions relating to richard mourdock's rape comment. and finally, mitt romney has actually refused to go on nickelodeon and answer questions from children. now, if mitt romney can't answer questions from 5-year-old kids, how do you think that's going to play with the national press corps? and isn't it interesting that fox news can't even get an interview with mitt romney right now? for more, let's turn to congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz of florida. she's a chairwoman of the democratic national committee. chairwoman, good to have you with us tonight. it's a very strange strategy, being played out by mitt romney. what do you make of it? >> well, i think what this boils down to is a matter of who do you trust? i mean, we know that there is a very stark contrast and a clear choice in terms of the two directions that we could go. but, i mean, time and again now, we have examples o
? >> well, i anticipate choppy trading until the time the lame duck congress extends all the tax cuts, expends sequestering to a new congress and white house in to 20* 13. at that point, the market will have a surge at the end of the year in celebration we're not hitting the fiscal cliff. david: if president obama's re-elected, he said he will not sign a tax bill that doesn't include a tax increase, and, of course, republicans say they won't sign on to something like that. we may not reach a resolution on this. >> oh, yes, david, no matter who is the president, no matter who the president is, it's a situation where there's a lot of urn certainty. -- uncertainty. it's not just the fiscal cliff. yiewmp's not -- europe's not resolved, middle east is volatile, and there's a surge of evaluations in september and october because of the euphoria with qe3, and we recommended taking some money off the table and raising some cash, and into the weakness now, we would be selectively buying. we're not bears, but prudently took profits last month, and we would selectively buy as they go down. liz:b
and is mostly closed today. or, grover norquist, the right wing anti-tax leader using hurricane sandy to attack the president. his group is distributing a flyer with a picture of the president and a storm and the caption, we've seen storms in virginia, but none like this. saying the president hasn't done enough to deal with the national debt. so even as we deal with this bipartisan federal government state-level kind of unity, we're seeing those that are using this as an opportunity to step over the debris and the suffering people and continue taking shots at the president. in many cases, unfounded shots at that, victoria. >> one would think that if there's one time that we can all come together is a natural disaster like this but the president going forward is showing his multidimensionality. mitt romney has been campaigning that he's a businessman and business leader but businesses are all about the bottom line and profit. while in government you have to take concern for the budget, you also need to have a broader base concern for the humanity of those people that elected you and not just tho

. that's basically what he's saying now. >> grover norquist is the no tax guy, made clear that the right wing of the party expects to call the shots. this is brazen, but let's listen to what was said and romney never opposed what he heard here. >> focus on electing the most conservative republican who can win in each house seat, and the most conservative republican who can win in each senate seat, and then pick a republican with enough working digits to handle a pen to become president of the united states. >> now, he's backing romney. romney signed the pledge for this guy. doesn't he ever call him out and say, you just made a fool out of me? you said i'm just going to be a robot. he never complains. >> no, he hasn't complained. >> he wanted norquist to believe he was going to be the guy with the pen. >> exactly. so you guys just pass it and i will sign it. now, would there come a point when mitt romney would actually challenge the right wing -- the far right wing of the party? there has not been a moment like that, not even remotely in this campaign. if you can remember one -- >> shanno
terrified about what is going on happen january 1st, 2013 with tax me geton. people shifted income out of 200013 to 2012 -- 2013 to 2012, it is much worse than it looks, people have made it look better by moving income from 13 to 12. it will be like going off a cliff whether he hit 2013. i am concerned. two candidates differ, dramatically on their economic policies. i think romney is far, far better than obama, obama has made a huge mistake over the last 3 years. lou: and friday, our last reading on unemployment. i don't know -- i don't know if anyone pays attention to these numbers. >> i do. lou: there is some credibility gap i believe. but give us your thoughts. >> you know, numbers have been horrible for the last 36 months, there has been no real recovery in the u.s. we barely kept up with population growth. if the participation rate had not fallen as sharply as we had, unemployment would still be in 12% range. a lot of people out there working, are working but part time instead of full time look they would like. it cannot continue this way very long. this is a tragic is, if you wo

is dubbed day one, job one, referring to the economy. he promises tax relief. north american energy independence. to repeal obamacare, block military cuts and balance the budget among other things. all of that is on hold. romney tonight will spend overnight in dayton, ohio, returning there without planned or scheduled campaign events tomorrow. it will likely be relief oriented but not clear it will take place in iowa. if the storm passed enough and opportunity to take part in recovery and clean-up action. possible mr. romney would head for the seacoast. at this point, all carefully choreographed final stage craft in final day of the campaign have been dashed. 200 hours less, really, before the election. exactly a week from tomorrow. the romney campaign doesn't exactly know what it will be doing for the next 24 to 48 hours. >> bret: still question mar marks. >> very much so. >> bret: still ahead, more inconsistencies between what the obama administration knew and what it said about the libya terror attack. first, karl rove and joe trippi on who is ahead in the presidential voting and

in a different direction, we started our different direct here two years ago, not taxing our people more, spending within our means, not beyond. other republican governors that were elected in 2010 with me have been doing the same thing across the country. neil: that would be a kick, though, right, if turns out where, president maiden roads, -- inroads, a lot of swing states, many but not all, all republican governors. it is more than coincidental, is it not? >> i think it is, it is the vast majority of republican governors that have been able to turn this, in those areas the economy is growing we would like to see it to know to grow, we could we need a leadership change at the top. neil: you think, that governor romney is wasting his time, as much as you love your state, he love our state, campaigning ere. it would still be an uphill battle this win? >> no, neil, i think we've encouraged governor romney to come to pennsylvania, we believe it is much closer looking at polling done by statehouse and senate. this is a different election than 4 yea ago. and i think he can be successful here
